Announced at CES 2023 earlier this year, the Samsung ViewFinity S9 is an upcoming monitor looking to impress, and it certainly looks like it will. Samsung advertises that this monitor is designed for creative professionals, apparently as a direct competitor to the Apple Studio Display – which has a 5K retina display at 5120×2880.

Let’s find out whether or not Samsung’s ViewFinity S9 (model number: S90PC) can match this kind of quality, or even surpass it. We’ll be showing off all the known specs of the ViewFinity S9 while we’re at it.
Will the Samsung ViewFinity S9 be 8K?
So straight into the important details. Coming in at 27″ – just like the Studio Display, the Samsung ViewFinity S9 has a 5K display, meaning the same 5120×2880 resolution. So that’s even more reason to believe that Samsung is looking to take on Apple (a long-standing rivalry) with this creative professional monitor.

As we said earlier, the ViewFinity S9 is a recently announced monitor, so we’re going to have to wait a bit before we can get our hands on it. Despite this, there’s no doubt that a 5K resolution monitor is going to impress. To back up the visual clarity of 5K, you will be able to enjoy a wide color gamut of 99% DCI-P3. That means superior, crisp detail you may never have experienced before.
